TWO pensioners who threw themselves out of a plane to raise money for abandoned and unwanted animals in Whitby handed over the cash they made.

Norma Carrick (70) and Geraldine Barnett (68) took to the skies in July in a tandem sky dive in a bid to help out RAW Animal Rescue which Norma runs with husband Dennis.

£500 went to Raw and £400 was also handed over to MacMillan.

The rest of the £1300 they raised went towards the cost of paying for the jump which was £200 each.

The money for Raw has been used to help repair a barn after the roof collapsed under the weight of last year’s snowfall.

It ruined all the hay that had been stored up for animal feed and bedding to see the charity through the winter.
